    hello everyone,
    I've been reading around the forum for quite sometime now (during my free time). I'll have more than one journey running simultaneously, this'll mark the beginning :)
    enough about me for now, the plan is to rank my site in Big G and monetize that using CPA lockers (probably OGads).

    so what i did already?
    • Bought CPA keyword from zlatan and BTB
    • Purchased a VCC and signed up for semrush 1 month trial
    • Purchased Kwfinder
    • bought an expired domain from The Great Nargil
    • Signed up at digital ocean and used their lowest possible service with serverpilot to make everything easier and faster.
    • wrote around 5k words or so, these are 3 main articles + 4 blog posts + homepage
    • linked the site to google webmasters tools and to serplab (free account)
    [​IMG]
    The site is 2-3 days old. total keywords im tracking amount to 31, with 15-20 long tails or slightly related to my site.
    The keywords all have a KW competition between 12-23 on Kwfinder and all are less than 11 on KwRevealer, with the least being 3 or 4 competition score. I also manually assessed the first 10 results before going on with this and found all of them lacking in terms of "Relevancy" and their strength isn't that great.. I used SplishSplash's guide for the manual assessment (kudos to him for the awesome guide).
    I'm not a native speaker, so writing article does take some time. In the near future (few weeks or a month) from now, I'll hopefully be having like 2 CPA sites and about 5 or 6 Amazon Affiliate sites.
    My goal for this project is to earn a 2 digit number/day with this site, I know it has more potential than this though. However this is my first site ever and my first attempt at seo as well.. so it'll be more of a learning experience as well!

    What I'll do next?
    • Write more content
    • optimize the site further
    • Improve on-page seo
    • Wait a few weeks or a month for rankings to stabilize before building links.
    I'll be posting updates whenever i change/add something to the site or when rankings change. if you have any tips, questions or simply want to criticize something i did, go ahead :)

    Stats
    Costs = $110
    Revenue = 0
     
    • Thanks Thanks x 4

    Thanks mates <3

    What's New:
    Pretty much nothing, the only keyword that showed in serps other than domain name dropped to N/A, so now besides the domain name, all other keywords are nowhere to be seen. Should I be worried?
    Google indexed all pages, then deindexed 1 of the 3 main articles.
    I'm trying to play around with my on-page SEO, for example:

    • added CloudFlare
    • Caching + Image compression plugins
    • Alt text for images
    • rewriting some sentences with Grammarly, a few commas here and there but I doubt that'll change much
    • Found a new keyword that equals all the other 30 keywords in volume. It has the same competition too, 4/100 Keyword revealer & 14/100 KwFinder. will be focusing on this one.
    the domain is a brandable one and has 0 anchor texts related to my keywords, could that be why the keywords aren't showing in serps?
    If anyone can offer any suggestions I'd appreciate that

    Good luck with your journey and thanks for including the costs. I see several journey posters not including that.

    I'm trying to rank a similar cpa keyword that has very little to no competition. I've experienced the same issue with indexing/deindexing/heavy google dancing on my first week so you shouldn't worry about it imo(there is still a dance going on with one of my keywords after a month). The expired domain shouldn't be the issue for you not ranking yet. Your site is still very new so just focus on writing quality content and improving the on-page. You might want to consider ordering some social signals.
    I will be following this journey so good luck OP.
